"Our heartbeats keep us alive, just as beats keep music alive. My heart first discovered music when I was just four-years-old. I saw someone play the piano for the first time and from that moment on, I knew music would be a huge part of my life. Over time, I realized I wanted to share my love of music with others and inspire them to use music as an outlet, a means of self-expression, and a way to convey the message of their hearts to the world. Heartbeats Music Lessons is the product of this realization, sparked by music at a young age. My mission is to create customizable lessons to instill a fundamental joy of music in the hearts of others. I believe my students should be able to from their own goals and dreams as musicians, while forming a strong theoretical and technical background."
